there is a change of illumination there is not a change of copy but change in the level of illumination, the kind where it's director internal and all of these things to make sure there is really appropriate conditional use, if there is community input, that there is the full chance to have a hearing and approval by commission appeal to the board of supervisors and appropriate other appeals of structure and increasing in forcing and these are treated as the exceptions rather than grandfather erg. thank you very much for working with us on this and on behalf of the local city that we continue to have a process that's open transparent and involves everyone in the community. thank you. >>> good afternoon. i'm in the green party and i officially represent the local grass roots. our city bedrock issue when we first started our organization was formula retail and this issue do have tails with that a little bit and that if a formula retail buys a bunch of storefront with non-conforming signs. you saw pictures of what could happen. that's a concern and also we would respectfully ask the sponsor to flip
>> it sounds like a great locally owned restaurants i've heard about the eaterer when the change over happened and there's great things about the good food. the concerns that the gentleman raised about the disability lawsuits and the office of small businesses but those are federal laws not city laws so they don't impact how people bays bases them but they have been trying to advise small businesses around those issues. and the other issue i'm not familiar with what you're discussing but they are a locally owned company as well. and if it were formula retailer it would open as a regular cafe would but that has no bearing on in this case. what we know about the restaurants it's going to close at 10 o'clock it doesn't sound like a routy place so with that i'd move to approve it's conditions >> i totally agree i mean 8 o'clock closings is not relevant. >> if you've been working actually 5 or 6 o'clock and you've quota to get to your place of work you feel bad coming in at the 745 because you know they're going do close and a lot of restaurants are not serving dinner. you've got to have beer and
to a march first 20013 planning review that the changes to the project don't have any further environmental effect i think this is a - referred to a notice to file. this wasn't in the packet. and it's not at all clear where that's available for review. i assume it's buried in the planning departments files. i would compare this to the earlier discussion about a washington where there was any addendum. there was discussion about the. so in the future i would hope that the document is referenced in the calendar item etc. so i hope to get an answer to that and finally, i'm not sure given the location of this project what is relationship is to the earlier 8 washington that was just talked about. it sounds like this is on drum and near jackson. is there some relationship can someone explain that >> thank you, mr. cruise. members of the commissioners while it is physically the same sewer that moves along those or along the alignment their separated in need. where respect to washington we feel we need to create this redundant line because of the north shore main. physically their close to each ot
practically change the design. sometimes there are differences in code that really make that change and it might be to the detriment of how we might see the design. i think it would be useful in your analysis to look at some of those projects and where the code has changed and how that can be impacted in the over all project design. i'm all fore this kind of 60 day window process because i don't particularly find our discussion as particularly robust until they come back for extension but it's worth having a hearing if we choose those projects to review drawings. i recognize the challenges that what they may not -- people might opt in the process without actually being quite building permit ready. that's the challenge we have when people come for a 3 year entitlement. what they may come for a 3 year extension may not manifest when they do build. that's something we should have a whole separate discussion if the issue of design and outcome is changed. it's truly the change when we have extending. >> first i would like to thank staff the changes to the proposal are great. i think it's
the nation, we can feel the thirst for change and the need to do things differently. although, there have been many senseless losses before and since sandy hook, we are determined to make this a turning point for our country. our children can't deliver the legacy that we as parents are instilling in them with the morals and the values. so it is our job as parpts to deliver that legacy forward and be their voice. the change is needed to make our nation safer will take a long time to deliver. but we are not going anywhere. all of us working sandy hook promise are absolutely committed to this cause, and that is why this innovation initiative is so important having so many of the great minds responsible for developing and supporting major advances in technology and recent history for them to turn their attention to solutions to gun violence, mental health, school safety and community. it gives me hope, at a time when hope is most needed. in my family is deeply grateful for this hope and to be part of this positive change that will benefit all of us in the future, thank you. >> ben and jeremy
yourself. the gideon decision changed that for felony cases and that brought other cases. but this is still a basic right that we are fighting for each and every day there was a new york times article yesterday, it's called the right to council. badly battered add at 50. in miami they handle more than 550,000 cases a year. all of city and county systems that pretty much rely on local funding to provide public defenders. in kentucky, 68 percent of poor people accused of misdemeanor short up for a court appearance without a lawyer. in 28 counties in florida 77 percent people pled guilty. many after arrest can spend months in jail. this is becoming more and more evident as prosecutors raise the stakes. we have seen more crimes increase in terms of severity. as a result of this more cases are settling through plea bargains but not necessarily because they are guilty but they have no choice. they are often handled by poorly paid inexperienced lawyers. very rarely are new trials granted. even here in san francisco we have struggled to fill three investigators positions for the last six months an
edwin lee. thank you. it's great to be here on 24th street i can literally see all the changes and the constant very brnt area. it gets crowded up here. i'm glad to join president chiu and the other supervisors who are supporting this neighborhood. all over the city we have 11 of these cb ds thought the city and 5 entire districts. the latest one i want to thank the board for the district that is raising their own money that can really compliment the downtown moscone. the neighborhoods i enjoy just as much because the neighborhood are constantly working to find ways to improve. i'm glad to see public works that helps get the permits done for those parks that have been here for 26 years and having funny; right? >> and that's at the way it should be. we have fun where we live and it's always a great investment to have the agencies working together with the neighborhoods association and the community benefit districts to improve and constantly change and improve the streets and uses of the streets as we try to support our neighbors. this makes our city great. i want to recognize
project and this change to this facility. they would expect a traffic plan. they would normally expect somebody to supervise pick ups and drop offs. james lick, a school up the street, has crossing guards and has a lot of problems with traffic and the interaction of children and the cars around there. there should be some way especially to prevent the back up of the cars which will line up in front of the school to drop off from backing up onto clipper street. clipper street to the locals is known as the clipper freeway, and since i have three accidents to contribute to that opinion, it can be a very dangerous street in the morning. should the cars in front of the drop-off back up more than four cars, they will start, you know, having their blinkers on and their flashers on and leave their car and it will create a really dangerous situation there, which i know they really don't want. you know, this is a change to the neighborhood and has a significant impact on what is a residential area. the church brings a business in, when you bring a business with traffic impact, that busine
friday, his birthday, but thanks to our friends and wonderful community, it was changed from a day filled with pain and loss into one of beauty and positivity. it was a day filled with purple balloons and cup cakes and butterflies and smiles and laughter. it was a day dylan would have loved. >> three months after his death and i am still in a state of shock. that i know nothing will bring dylan back i am determined to honor him and the others lost that i am dedicated myself to saving other lives to insure that people don't need to go through and the pain that we are going through. if you are a parent, siblings, families, friends and communities. we met this morning with families from the local area, who have shared this experience, and have lost children and while it was very moving to see their inner strength and courage, the look of pain in their eyes has become all too familiar to me. it is the same pain i see in the families who also lost loved one on 12-14 and the same pain that i notice every time that i look in the mirror. love has so much that connects us because of our losses and
and customer care participation. if we change some of these choices made in the programs or changed in some of the assumption we can change the cost of the program and apply the cost savings to either lowering the rate or we can apply it to bonding capacity, but if we were to add up all of those cost savings that were summarized by miss hale, that comes you the to $9.4 million annually and that would give us roughly $90 million in bonding capacity. if we chose that otherwise it could go into savings for rate payers. >> yes. or we could reduce the rate the 2 cents for the renewables mix and half cent for the payment. >> and the areas for commission action can you say what that provides in terms of what it means in terms of that $9.4 million. does that go directly toward rate payers or does that lead towards -- >> it leads to the program as it's been designed as with a 10 percent mix with the type 1 renewable, 85 percent for the type 2 renewable. it's been said at the program has been designed. if we make different choices on how we design this program we can bring the cost of the program do
the societal changes in a dent in a nation's shameful conference. last fall we did make some progress even at the ballot box which has been very difficult during this generation but prop 36 passed in the deeply embedded 3 strikes law. i also want to point out to this group even though the focus today is on public defenders in the criminal system, in san francisco we try to go even further than that. last year they were making san francisco the rights to civil council city, the city of gideon. there are civil cases, eviction cases, family law cases where the consequences, the results followed in court are almost as severe to what gideon faced and what people face in criminal cases. what we recognize at the outset of the supervisors proclamation is part inspirational, our leaders in the community have rallied around it and the bar association and our firms have taken on more conviction cases. later we'll be holding an event to thank people in these positions and so please stay tuned about that. in the meantime let's focus on gideon and the public defenders role. i would say if there is ever
for the changes. yesterday, i reviewed the primary results of our assessments. we're taking a number of steps to review accident costs on the program. we're essentially eliminating the organizational - we also have significantly reduced city anti consultant at the prom level and we've taken a number of steps to transition our projects to city staff and we'll continue to make that go forward. i think we're far long enough to give you a preview and i'll give you a thorough presentation in april but schedule wise you ail our projects will be delivered by the july 16th deadline except for two projects. we also have the schedule of the creek project formerly known as the creek filter project that project schedule has been debated until early 2019. keep in mind that project is tied to the dam project and can't be completed until the dam is completed. budget wise we know that it will exceed the budget we're still working out all the numbers. and when you look at costs so far based on the preliminary costs but at the same time we've realized savings of 20 projects. the one project that we have has th
is based on preliminary drawings or prelim concepts and there is a contingency and it reflects the changes in the field and i know that you had a briefing on the claims, the claims ultimately that have resolved, and will be treated as change orders, and provided against it. the cmg which is within the construction budget and intended to address coordination issues between the contractors and schedule recovery and related issues and another potential source of funding for changes during the course of construction, so both the construction and the cmg contingency individually or in combination are used to address the changes to the contracts and then the program reserve which is independent budget category. and represents a reserve against the broad range of program budget requirements outside of the outside of the construction budget and in addition to reviewing those, budget categories in the recommendations that we are looking at now, we are recommending and including a schedule contingency which is a reserve of funds that will be used to cover, program administration and soft costs, if c
know that the brain is continuously changing. we now know that each time you acquire a new skill or ability, the brain is actually changing its wiring. id is actually changing its functionality. is actually specializing. answer that specialization, your account for the development of the skill or ability in play. we know this occurs throughout life. in fact commit to the end of life, because we know we can improve our ability and we can acquire a new skill to the end of life. here we have an older woman who has acquired a skill in later life, basket weaving. we know that because she has developed a special ability at this point in life, she has remodeled her brain, and that accounts for her developing of this expertise. this is in play in our lives and throughout our lives because our lives are so richly varied from early childhood onward, we create, through billions of moments of brain change, an incredible individuation of ourselves so that through these changes, we have a special ability is shared by no one else in this room in exact form. we have special knowledge and underst
for change has happened. as you request for further outreach, this additional engagement and iterative changes certainly did happen. next, you requested to consider extending the appeal period. this change has been considered, but has not yet been made uniformly. what has changed is where appeal noticing requirements have been met, the appeal where they have not been met, the appeal window would be open, meaning there is requirements and if you don't meet them, the clock doesn't start running. what has not yet changed is uniformly extending the appeal window for all appeal types. the proposal is at 20 days. today we're going to ask you to ask the supervisor to continue extending that to 30. and lastly, the commission asks for clarity as to the trigger for the appeal window. this is now been definitively defined. the window for appeal would begin at the first approval action and depending on the type of projects. for exemptions of private projects, the first approval would either be at a publicly noticed hearing by the planning commission or the zoning administrator and these would incl
of the city's costs which are 30 million and change. it's [inaudible] isn't going to do the job fundraisers do their thing and -- [inaudible] [inaudible] and so if san francisco taxpayers do he wanted up getting suck with the bill for 15 million-dollar or more the intft so huge that -- [inaudible] . >> i still look at america's cup and i personally attended of the world series events this past summer they were incredential and the first introduction to the blend of new technology and the visualization of being able to see this race pack and other jurisdictions where they have actually had to take a vote out to see it on the shores of san francisco bay this is an incredible big change and so the mean please of it has been a little bit of a change chalg but now, that we have this behind us and we know what it is to really establish a good invitation tall of the visitors that want to come in and participate in this, we know how to do it better and it's not as big as it originally was. and because it was not, some of the things that were expenses of the city that created the 30 million-dolla
, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to mak
the coalition. this list of membership was pushed judge? because we were eliminating me. they were changing the by laws to eliminate me. why? because i testify that about the bars at the planning commission. and after several times when this change was read over and over by the city employees it's a police code violation. i can be arrested for this. but almost all the resident are given because they were forced out by threats and intimidation in the press and yet those are the group that you say is - our neighborhood is wrecked >> any additional public comment? >> sue i'm asking the commission to request a hearing on a couple of hearing. one is a presentation of how where you're going to process with the dates where we have to read those in the paper. it's a planning commission issue. second saturdays paper the sequesterer. in the sequesterer list which is the list of impacts of san francisco was the removal of chunks not all but a chunk of the central quarter what is going to happen to the funding for the sequesterer for the city? i think it's a matter of planning commission interests
and read that and i know it was too late to change that we did what we could to get the word out we do want to make sure i think today has been a thoughtful afternoon a lot of excellent suggestions have been made and these points are well taken when we schedule this again we'll make sure it will be available to the industry to all of you before that period of time so some time for thoughtful deliberations in advance. and we'll try to just engage the most thoughtful process we possibly can on this we know it's a very important issue and i believe there's a hearing before the puc a workshop on some of this? >> so on april tenth and 11th the california public utility commission the cpuc is holding a workshop about the regulations that relate to the services we're talking about new online enabled transportation services. they said it would be a 6 months process these workshops on april 10 and 11th will be 930 a.m. each of those mornings on 505 van ness probably go until 430 p.m. is what we're told there should be an agenda coming out about this workshop in the last week of march is what we'r
are better and in a way it's kind-of surprising how quickly that has changed and clearly we are in different times not having to deal with this fiscal crisis that we have dealt with what does that give you the freedom do and what to focus on that might have been on the back burner with the emergency? [inaudible] first shot >>> so, i'm very caution to say it took a lot of hard work, i remember the day we walked into the office to a 40 million deficit we had to renegotiate our contract and peenings for the first time and pension that happens an issue in california were part of the state system and still not ready for the shake-out on the development and so, i'll like to think it's -- [inaudible/incomprehensible] level and i think that what it gibbs you time do is to start working on some of these dreams and really give development opportunities and that is what it's like despite the evidence -- the general fund and in our economic outlet team and that we -- [inaudible] and working and -- of that and i know -- and i worked on chinese investments because we are looking at capital investment an

[applause] >> a little shorter. thank you very much. it's such a privilege and honor to be here today to talk about this really important subject. adult probation's goal is to break the intergenerational cycle of incarceration. if we do it where we have the greatest risk and opportunity is with this 18-25 transitional age group. adult probation has undergone a transformation over the last three years. we have learned so much, and diag gasone. and the greater partners and others who put this forum together. it's really important
